Sinopsis

A man’s eyes catch through his binoculars a beautiful girl stripping in the deep of the forest and, unthinkingly, he starts walking into the woods towards her. All of a sudden, he’s attacked in the back by a strange guy armed with a pair of scissors and his face covered with a bandage. Wounded and bleeding, the man manages to get away and reach a distressing mansion that turns out to be an isolated scientific research spot. There, an unlikely machine transports him one hour back into his recent past. Then the mystery seems about to be solved… only to find that everything has now become an evil mess indeed.
